Born in 1967 in Seoul, Koo Jeong-A is an artist who lives and works in Paris.
Since the 1990s, Jeong-A has been reinventing spaces with site-specific works. Her work generally uses architecture, drawing, fiction, poetry. She creates installations as well as sculptures, films and audio works.
The artist creates precarious and temporary installations that question “the space between two stable things”. Many of her works are conceived in specific environments that question the limits of reality and fiction, imagination and current events in our world. Jeong-A considers the connection of energies between a place and people, relying on chance to conduct his encounters. Koo Jeong-A’s work has been shown at the ARC – Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris, Galerie Yvon Lambert, Paris, at the Vienna Secession and at the Venice Biennale in 2003.
